Xbox One UK News Round Up! 31/05 – 07/06

E3 is almost here! Not a day goes by without talk of the press conference and so, as things start to ramp up a gear with announcements, trailers and news on oh-so-many games, we’re going to bring you weekly news round ups to make sure you’re staying up to date with the biggest stories. Because we’re kind like that, you see.

Fans of Fallout had a very happy week, but that wasn’t the most popular news on site. By far, the most popular was… the news that the Destiny Easter Egg has been removed from Halo 3: ODST MCC.

Destiny’s here now!

Yet, who is the cryptic message that’s replaced ‘Destiny awaits’ intended for? Click the link above and have a guess!


Fallout 4! It’s official, it’s post-apocalyptic, and it’s going to be at E3. If you missed the trailer, do have a mosey on down to it.

The original Dogmeat?

You can also find some high-res trailer screenshots via this link. Now excuse us while we go and sit in a darkened room for five minutes until we get a grip on our unbridled excitement.


We have a grip! Which is good, because it’s time to talk about Halo.

Locke or the Chief?

If you don’t ask, you don’t find out; find the link to the forums where you can pose your own questions in the link above.


Rolling out yesterday and onwards is the latest Xbox One update, which fixes multiplayer issues!

New Xbox One Update Fixes Multiplayer Issues, Adds HEVC 10-bit Codec and More


I didn’t know what HEVC 10-bit Codec was until I read that article. Now, I’m mildly thrilled by the Xbox One utilising it. Read the article to experience that thrill for yourself.


It’s June! Which means E3! Oh, wait, we’ve said that already. How about we look at the games out this month instead.

Are those games going to be any good? Check back to Xbox One UK’s review page frequently to find out.


Do you want a new Xbox One? Have a friend who’s not jumped onto the One’s gaming bandwagon? Do either of you like indie games? If your prevailing answer is “yes”, take a look at this.

Xbox One ‘Independent Developers Pack’ Revealed With New Controller

Look at all those indie games.


If indie is your thing, and there are some fantastic titles out from independent developers, this is worth a look. And who knows, if you’ve never really tried indie games before this might be a pleasant surprise.


Tomb Raider fans, put your hands up! Good! Now put them back down onto your mouse/touch-pad/touch-screen and click or tap on this:

Rise of the Tomb Raider – New Clues on Story

Lara’s refusal to pay her utility bills led to some dark and cold times in Croft Manor.


Yes, Xbox One UK went digging about on the internet and found Official Information on the story in the new Tomb Raider game. It’s not a great deal, but it does name the antagonists. Give it a read to be ahead of the E3 curve, when more of the game will be on show.


LEGO Worlds was announced last week, and although it’s yet to be confirmed for consoles, it hasn’t been ruled out.

Over 80 Years of LEGO Brought Together in LEGO Worlds!

Give it two minutes with a virtual puppy and those bricks will be EVERYWHERE.


Who’d have thought LEGO would come so far? It’s a joy!


People like deals, and we’ve got your weekly deals right here.

This Week’s Deals with Gold and Spotlight Sale

Unfortunately, the Xbox One isn’t quite as wireless as that.


Anything take your fancy? There are only a couple of days to jump on these so make it snappy!


E3! Again! If you want to know when the conferences are taking place, see this incredibly useful infographic.

Not to be confused with the E3 fuel additive. Two very different things.

Stick with Xbox One UK throughout E3 for all the latest happenings. We’ll be posting the livestreams of the conferences too!


Indie Spotlight

Being an independent developer is no easy thing. Aside from actually having to make your game, with all the skills and obstacles that process involves, you’ve also got to sell the thing afterwards. Indie games, however, are where some of the most fresh and interesting ideas in video games are coming from right now, so we’re going to take a moment to point you in the direction of a great looking one right now, that also happens to be on Kickstarter.

Shape Of The World-Kickstarter

Glastonbury Pyramid, anyone?

Don’t let that innocuous looking triangle fool you – Shape of the World is boasting some fantastic visuals and a fascinating concept of exploration-driven gameplay in a world that grows around you. Go on, have a look!
